Sevastopol, the Crimean port city is home to ancient historical landmarks and military historical monuments. The city has the potential of becoming the world center of military history tourism, confirmed by Sevastopol legislature deputy Alexei Chaly.
To quote Chaly, “I believe that some things we have here are growth points of the world rather than only of the federal level.” He himself was one of the leaders of “the Russian Spring” on the Black Sea peninsula in 2014 when Crimea joined up with Russia. To quote him once again, “From the viewpoint of the country’s history, military history and the number of artifacts linked with history, I believe that nothing of this kind can be found anywhere in Russia.”
The authorities at Sevastopol are jointly discussing with the expert community about the city’s strategy regarding social and economic development through 2020. Tourism remains one of the key areas of this city’s development under this strategy. The city’s authorities believe that it has huge possibility for event and thematic tourism.
Sevastopol has the Chersonesos Taurica museum, containing exclusive archeological artifacts from the Middle Ages. The city also witnessed the Crimean War and the Soviet Union’s fight against Nazi Germany on the peninsula and the peninsula’s liberation from the fascists.
